Hello, and thank you for your interest in our Labradors!
We are pleased to offer Lewis, a one year old male, for adoption: he is a personable and handsome young fellow. While beyond his puppyhood, Lewis still has a lot of kid in him, thus he has a good blend of malleability for learning the ways of a new family and household, but is beyond the stages of destruction and testing boundaries that sometimes come with early childhood. Your shoes should be safe ;)
Lewis crates easily, handles himself well on the leash, and comports himself with dignity in the house. He is an extraordinary loving soul, well-socialized to human and other canine, alike. He can handle cats pretty well, too, as long as they meet him with some confidence and self-possession.
Lewis is up to date on vaccines and heart worm prevention.
We place Lewis in the interests of not letting our population grow to large here and of finding him an individual situation where he'll be the center of attention.
For more details, please contact us at: LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com.

Not far from Nashville, but squarely in the country :)
Thanks to all for their inquiries on these two Loblolly pups. Huxley and Maise now live with their new families.
We are hopeful for black and yellow puppies in January & February: Jubal x Donaghy and Bellamy x Tonto, respectively. If nature is generous, we should be able to offer your family a puppy in Spring 2022. Please reach out to us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com for details on adoption.
Hello, everyone. Thanks for visiting us and hope that all is well with you and your family...
We are in a rare situation, having two pups from different litters available for adoption: a four month old yellow female out of Donaghy & Maggie (see Sons and Daughters pages) and a 11 week old chocolate male. Both pups are lovely ambassadors of their breed and current on puppy vaccines and deworming, enjoying daily socialization with us and mentor adult Labs alike, and offered with a two year written guarantee on hip, elbow, and eye health; pre-paid AKC registration; microchip; care kit, portfolio, and all proper documentation.
If you would like more details regarding either one, please reach out to us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com with a bit of information about your expectations and desires.

Update: Irene has moved in with her new family. Thanks so much to everyone who reached out with interest to us!
Hello, happy Fall and thanks for visiting our website.
If you are thinking a Lab in the family is just what you need, but realize that a puppy may not be the best fit right now, please meet Irene, a lovely 1 year old female. For details regarding her adoption, please visit the Adults to Adopt page and/or contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com.
Thanks again for your interest in our Labs!

Hi, everyone. Thanks so much for visiting our website.
We are pleased to offer a lovely 9 week old dark yellow female out of Loblolly's Sugar Magnolia of Ethereal and Windancing's Donaghy at Verdigris. This little girl, whom we are calling Olive at the moment, is a charismatic and smart pup, and the expression of a long lineage of well-bred Labradors selected for disposition, health, and conformation.
She has been raised indoors in a climate-controlled environment, and received four dewormings, two vaccinations, and daily socialization (e.g., daily handling from week two, graduated introduction of novelty, noise desensitization, controlled outside visits): Olive is ready to happily and confidently join your family.
At adoption we send Olive home with a portfolio, microchip, written health contract that guarantees hip, elbow, and eye health to 2 years of age, health records, pre-paid AKC registration, care guidelines, a care kit of sundries, and a week's supply of quality kibble.
Please feel free to reach out with questions and inquiries at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Thanks again for spending time on our website and your interest in our Labs.

We are now taking reservations for 2 yellow females and a yellow male, ready for adoption mid August 2021. For details regarding this litter and our adoption process, please email us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com

Please see below for pictures and details of a pending litter.
If you are interested in Irene, a one year old red female currently available for adoption, please refer to our Adults to Adopt page and/or email us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
We are excited to announce the imminent birth of a litter of black pups due late June, thus ready for their new families in late August. (The puppies pictured above are from a 2018 litter, but are shown just in case you need a visual ;)
Both parents ( Click here to see Donaghy; here for Maggie; and refer to the slideshow below) are lovely souls: beautiful, affectionate, and intelligent, and the scion of a long heritage of thoughtful breeding for conformation, disposition, and health.
These pups will be raised with care, cleanliness, and security in an indoor, climate-controlled environment where they'll be attended to as they mature, receiving developmental levels of socialization that entails daily handling, graduated introduction of novelty, noise desensitization, and controlled outside visits. By eight weeks of age, we'll have administered three de-wormings and the initial round of puppy vaccines. At pick-up we send puppies home with a portfolio, microchip, written health contract, health records, pre-paid AKC registration, care guidelines, a supply kit of sundries, and a week's worth of quality kibble (we feed Victor Hi Pro-Plus to our pups).
After pups are born and availability in terms of sex is established, deposits of $1000 towards the full purchase price will determine order of choice. Initial deposits are non-refundable but transfer in perpetuity should a family need to defer adoption for extenuating circumstances. The balance is due at pickup.
As the pups grow, I send out weekly Puppy Reports with pictures and details so that your family can enjoy their maturation until adoption at 8 weeks. While pre-established order of choice structures the selection process, we offer information and insight on disposition, energy level, and attention valence-- as requested-- to families to assist in the selection process of individual pups.
We welcome any questions that you have and are glad to provide further details: LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
If in your inquiry, you would share details of your family and intentions, we would be appreciative as it's important to us that each Lab pup go to a conscientious home where it will be valued as an integral member of the family.

As part of our way of doing things here at Loblolly, we always ask adopting families to agree to contact us should life circumstances bring about a change that means their Labrador needs a different placement, and they do not have a support network that can provide such. Thus, we have now with us an eight year old female named Sara who is in need of a new family home. Sara's former caregiver has passed on, and while we were glad to welcome her here for as long as need be, it would be nice for Sara to have a new family where she's the center of attention again.
Sara is spry; she is accustomed to the run of six acres adjacent to 200, chasing after the Gator and foraying in the creek. At the same time, she is a mature soul, so a day of meandering around means nice easy evenings laying on the floor. Sara gets along fine with dogs her size who carry themselves with some dignity and she seems to appreciate all humans, although we do not think that she's been around very small children.
Sara is crate, leash, and house trained. She is not destructive but she does prefer couches for slumbering as versus hard floors. She is on heartworm and flea prevention.
Sara's placement fee is $500. We ask that anyone inquiring about her provide details of their circumstances regarding children, other dogs, and access to dog exercise space: LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Thanks so much for visiting us, and take care.

Everyone... Tobin has gone to her new family now. Thanks so much for your inquiries. Please continue to check back with us for updates on availability. Best regards! Eve
Hello, and thank you for your interest in Loblolly Labradors.
We are currently offering for adoption a 22 month old, light red female by the name of Tobin (all the pups in her litter were named to celebrate the winning 2019 USA Women's World Cup team :) She honors Forward Tobin Heath.
Fittingly, Tobin is a very athletic and intelligent dog, a loving and big-hearted soul, and an inveterate retriever. We are seeking a family that can invite her into their home as a lifelong companion and promise to throw the ball for her faithfully. This last point is non-negotiable according to Tobin.
A few details about Tobin:
Thanks again for your time and consideration. The best of health to you and your family,

Everyone, thank you for your inquiries. Sturgil has joined his new family. Please contact us directly if you are looking for a more mature Lab, as occasionally we do have one for adoption. Eve
Hello, thank you for visiting and allow us to introduce Loblolly's Blackslider's Wine, or our boy "Sturgil," as we affectionately call him (we do live near Nashville after all ;)
We are proud yet heart heavy to offer him for he is a beautiful and loved member of our family, and although only one year old, well on his way to becoming a well appointed adult. Finding the balance of offering each Lab at our home quality care and attention, however, versus making the necessary logistical maneuvers for the continuation of the Loblolly line sometimes means that we have to make hard decisions we would rather not... given all the time and money and space in the world-- Sturgil would stay right here at Loblolly. But, we do not have any of those, and Sturgil deserves more individual attention than we can give him right now. As a one year old he is still very much an adolescent and highly adaptable to rhythms of a new forever home. Think of him as essentially still a child.
Things you should know about Sturgil:
We are glad to answer any questions that you might have about Sturgil. Please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Thanks for visiting us, and take care out there.

Loblolly Labradors is a labor of love and ongoing, conscientious pursuit of the beauty and satisfaction of a well-bred Labrador retriever. Creating a complex and fulfilling relationship with another species-- the dog-- we think, reflects days well-spent. The families who adopt our dogs share that belief.
